I think @hixie is right when he said it WONTFIX in HTML and I think 
@tabatkins is wrong when he says that it WONTFIX on either level. We 
are getting close due to `display: grid` and `display: flex` but it is
 not always sufficient. #588 has enough and good examples.

>From #588 I can see that implementors don't see it as something to be 
implemented easily. However I wonder how `::before` and `::after` made
 it then. What is the difference here? A pseudo element is being 
injected for the cases of `::before` as well as `::wrap`.

Didn't know #588 existed and strange enough I came to a very similar 
solution.
At least the W3C guides say that you should think about authors first.
